UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 This beer is pretty lacking. Its aroma is negligible, its appearance not much more than average, its flavour minimal, its palate less than regularbasisbuyworthy, and my overall impression thereof is...um...not terrific. The taste is just not very appealing and doesn't inspire any real desire to get this beer again.

Light amber color. Little layer of a head. Malty nose, medium average taste - malt. Suprisingly it doesnt't hurt.

Well, this thing is finally in Portland, off tap even. Pretty normal brown color. Aroma? Don't think so. Taste is quite sweet, but the body doesn't balance out. Very drinkable, but nothing exceptional.

I guess Shiner really isn't that bad for a bock, but i really hate bock. The carmel sweetness is there, but the balance is lacking. For the style, Shiner has done a decent job.

I suppose this is what an american bock could be, but its not what I wanna see. a walnut/mohogany body, well carbonated with a thin white top. musty, funky and vegetabley with some breadiness and grain character. weak, but plenty of dmso. corn and flaked grains. something along the parallel of a huber bock. kind of warm with some ripe fruits on finish

In the bottle, this is usually the cheapest Beer of color in the store. Brown in color, decent short-lived head. Caramel color does not necessarily translate into flavor. Probably the most flavorful mass-produced beer in texas, but that's not much credit.

Draft, shaker glass. A little bit of caramel, DMS, no hops. There's a hint of bock bite here. Lightly sweet flavor; grainy, husky finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: Texas can keep this one.

Ick, I had a bad run of beers tonight. This one smelled like pineapple a little bit, but had that budweiser smell that all bad lagers seem to have... Fizzy as all hell.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 25, 2004
On draft. Nice clear light brown with a small white head. Lagery smell, sweet with a bit of spice. Flavor is less than expected, malty with noticible tart-astringent hops. Passable to wash down the barbeque I had to go with it. Medium body and light carbonation. What's the big deal with this one?

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Pours a nice brown, more of a dark amber, small head, and no lace really. Earthy malt aroma with a slight hop character. Nose also has a bit of yeast or wheat in it. Malts again dominant in the flavors with sharp bitterness with touches of alcohol. The wheat characters come out a bit as well as the earthiness. Sweet malt body and palate with a hoppy finish.
